Re: IGNOU OPENMAT Passing Marks

OPENMAT (OPEN Management Aptitude Test) is conducted by the Indira Gandhi National Open University for admission to various postgraduate degree and diploma courses in the field of management study.

As you want here I am telling Passing Marks to do qualify IGNOU OPENMAT exam
The minimum marks required to get admission to any of the management programmes offered by IGNOU, the student has to score at least 60% - 70%.

Exam Pattern

The OPENMAT exam pattern is usually the same every year.

There will be a total of 200 Multiple Choice Questions which the candidates need to complete in 3 hours.

The questions are divided into four sections.

General Awareness: 30 Questions

English Language: 50 Questions

Quantitative Aptitude: 50 Questions

Reasoning: 70 Questions

In the OPENMAT examination there are 200 questions to be solved in 180 minutes.

So for sections like General Awareness, dont spend a lot of time thinking of an answer.

If you are unable to answer a question in the first reading, simply leave the question and move to the next question.

Attempt all the questions you know and then try for the questions you are somewhat doubtful.

This way you can save a lot of time and attempt the maximum number of questions.

There is no negative marking in the OPENMAT examination.
